Becoming a Gestational Carrier

Stork Surrogacy International LLC is currently accepting applications from potential gestational carriers throughout North America.

Thank you for considering the gift of becoming a gestational carrier in our program. For some, surrogacy is the last hope for having a baby. Many Intended Parents who are considering surrogacy have tried everything to conceive including exhaustive testing and countless appointments with fertility specialists, resulting in strained relationships.

We are currently accepting applications from  healthy women age 21 – 39  in order to provide a diverse group of gestational carriers for intended parents world-wide.

Some Intended Parents may have children from a previous relationship and some may have required a hysterectomy, yet still want to share the joys of parenting with her current partner. Some Intended Parents are in a same sex gay relationship and the only way they can have a biological child is through egg donation and surrogacy. Some never had a chance because they may have gone through cancer treatments in their teens, twenties or thirties or may have even been born without ovaries and/or a uterus. Through our involvement, we intend on helping all these people create families.

If you are a healthy woman between the ages of 21 and 39, who have had at least one healthy, normal pregnancy and a delivery to term, please contact us to conduct a preliminary telephone interview.  Gestational Carriers must be willing to complete medical and psychological testing, take a series of injectable medications, and undergo an ultrasound guided transvaginal embryo transfer. You will be asked to fill out an extensive medical and personal profile and to send photos of yourself and your children if you have any. All candidates are treated with the utmost care, respect, and confidentiality.

Becoming a gestational carrier is not something you enter into lightly. It requires a high level of maturity and responsibility, and involves taking a regimen of fertility medications and undergoing a full term pregnancy with possibly a multiple births. As with any medical procedure, there are potential risks—it is the sole responsibility of the surrogate to investigate all risks and discuss all medical issues with your physician.

The following outlines an overview of the surrogacy process:

An appointment is scheduled with you to conduct a preliminary interview over the phone to assess whether you meet the initial criteria to be a surrogate.  Upon completion of the interview, it will be reviewed by our staff and if you are initially approved to progress to the next stage which is the application process, you will be contacted by email and/or phone to set up a telephone interview with you.

All applications are held in the strictest of confidentiality.  You must have access to email to become a gestational carrier.

We will review your completed application and screen it for acceptance.

At no time will any identifying information be given to anyone without your permission.
